PURPLE PROGRAMME 23 September 2010
In which the show gets off to a dreadful start with a veritable cornocopia of technical glitches and cock-ups, after which Nick and Cocker explain that candidate senator, Christine O'Donnell, as a nutter, discuss if the internet is bad for the mind, mention Youf and binge drinking, and explain how many policeman it takes to cross a busy Essex road. They also point out that Christmas started nearly two weeks ago, insult the French, play the Creeksea Song by Vic Evans and Darren (plus Yahn), divulge why it is our duty to smoke and drink more and extract the mick from American media degrees. They also touch on Cuba, elephants, teeth-cleaning and taking cats for a walk. Laurence joins at 12.20 after WhamBam Eddie fails to turn up for his advertised rant about local taxation and the Burnham Toilets We also created TRAPP - the Tobacco, Rizla, Alcohol and Porn Party, and insisted on the rights that should be accorded smokers in the health system that they fund so generously.
